I am investigating -from the perspective of the global South- ideas related to Post-colonialism, national identity and social injustices by reflecting on them within the global North.
It is also present in my work as a second layer, the false memory of the past and the fictionalization of the history trough education. The role of history, migration, ideology and personal memories, provides me the insights and awareness of my praxis.
I am currently working with different kind of media -timebase material- within the moving image. Including sound and video, performance, sculptural objects and archives; trying to combine them in various installations. By working with these media I can explore the means of movement, transition, displacement, change, impermanent and invisible.
My subject of interest involves questions of human condition in a backward culture. The powerful silent machine and invisible line trace between North and South. This research starts from the Colonialism until the present moment, trying to uncover the false trace of the history that consider a New World within an already existed Old World. The strategies the colonial countries used it to blind the society by a reconstruction of a new national identity.
Is also part of my interest the side effect of Post-colonialism and global Capitalism, related to displacement of native cultures, criminality, political corruption, dictatorship, genocide and media representation.
